Interesting family member...

I always remember my grandfather telling me stories of his cousin, Dan Mannix. He was this very colorful character who left home to join the circus as a sword swallower. He wrote the Fox & the Hound. He travelled all over the world and wrote stories about the wilds of Africa (like meeting head hunters). He had several exotic animals on his property including a cheetah. The only problem was that we couldn't visit him even though he lived nearby because he was a recluse and didn't accept any visitors. Any. I thought I would look him up on Google to find more info and I discovered this entry in Wikipedia:


Pretty interesting guy. Too bad I never got to meet him.


On another note, I have finished several piece so far this week including some smaller signs. All my auctions will be 3 day auctions now so I can get items shipped to my customers for the holidays.

Here's a whimsical one that is on ebay right now.
